Appalachian Cornbread

1 cup flour
1 cup cornmeal
2 tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/4 cup oil (or melted lard)
1 egg, beaten

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Put about a tablespoon bacon drippings into an 8x8 pan, and put the pan in the oven to get hot.

In medium bowl combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in remaining ingredients, beating by hand, just until smooth. (Batter will be lumpy.) Pour batter into prepared, heated pan or skillet. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Invert onto cutting board, cut and serve.
